Pacific Palisades Estate Planning Attorney

Estate Planning Services Backed By Tax Law Experience

Most people — including most estate planning attorneys — do not understand the importance of tax matters in the context of estate planning, and most attorneys do not take tax matters into account when helping clients draft their estate plans. This is a mistake.

Estate planning and tax law are indelibly intertwined, each affecting the other. When drafting an estate plan, it is important to work with an attorney who has experience with both estate planning and tax law.

At the Law Office Of Lawrence H. Damm, I bring more than 25 years of legal experience and a master's degree in taxation. I represent clients in Santa Monica and throughout Southern California. I am able to provide my clients with sound legal counsel and help them craft comprehensive estate plans that achieve their objectives.

Comprehensive Estate Planning

As a Pacific Palisades estate planning lawyer, I help clients with all documents essential to a comprehensive estate plan, including:

  • Trusts
  • Wills
  • Health care directives
  • Powers of attorney

When clients come to me, I take the time to examine their assets and liabilities, and listen to their goals and needs. Based on that information, I provide clients with advice and counsel as to the best estate planning instruments and strategies to employ. It is very important to me to help my clients understand their various options and the pros and cons of their potential choices. This approach empowers my clients to make smart, confident decisions.

Santa Monica Probate Lawyer

I represent clients in a range of probate matters. Whenever possible, I help my clients avoid probate. When this is not possible, I work with trustees and estate administrators throughout the legal process to make sure they are in compliance and to protect their interests as they fulfill their fiduciary duties in estate and trust administration.

Comprehensive Service

After the estate planning or probate matter is completed for a client, I do not leave it at that. I make sure to follow up with my clients to check in and to see if anything has changed in their lives that might alter their estate planning strategies.

I maintain a comfortable, professional working environment in my Pacific Palisades office. Since my law firm is a one-attorney operation, I am able to provide my clients the personalized attention they need.
